1Choose to be a Safety leader - Compliance is a short-term safety strategy that needs enforcement, over and over again. And, when you stop enforcing, workers return to their old behaviors. Safety leaders, on the other hand, do the right thing even when no one is looking. When people choose to become safety leaders in their own lives, they make safety a personal value. When safety becomes a personal value, people choose safety without being told. The PeopleWork blog is designed to help give ordinary people the skills to be come extraordinary safety leaders.
2PeopleWork is a Positive Approach to Safety - Gruesome photos, videos and gut-wrenching stories and presentations of people who have been injured in workplace accidents is fraught with inconsistencies. People who care about their own safety don't want to be told over and over what "not" to do or messages of "don't do what I did." They want a blueprint for success in safety that is more than rules and procedures. PeopleWork builds on positives. Each week, you will get tips, ideas and strategies to make your safety program positively engaging.
3Safety Leaders Keep It Fresh - People tire of the redundancy of the same safety messages. Safety needs a fresh approach to getting people to do more than just basic minimum compliance. The PeopleWork blog encourages employees to become leaders in their own lives through new ideas and communication strategies. The PeopleWork blog keeps it fresh with new approaches, strategies and ideas. The PeopleWork blog inspires to motivate.
4Safety Is Evolving - This is not your father's safety program anymore. Safety is evolving, changing and accelerating with new ideas, strategies and especially people. People don't buy-in to compliance and paperwork-based safety programs. They buy-in to other people and to what safety can provide for them. Safety is going mainstream. Keep current. The PeopleWork blog keeps you up to date with new trends in safety and leadership.
